Who are the mentors?

The mentors are in senior roles, drawn from both the local and Sydney metropolitan region and come from the private and public sectors. They have volunteered to share their work, life experience, skills and knowledge with law students.

Every effort is made to match mentors and students based on a mentor’s area of expertise and a student’s area of interest, however this is not guaranteed.
